Walkabout XII: Turkish Delight
October 29-November 15, 2021
Using pandemic cancellation credits from both Intrepid Travel and Turkish Airlines, this 18-day adventure felt as close to 'travel as usual' as I've been since the Japan trip in 2019. Yes, there were masks in most places indoors, along with a 'COVID pass' from the Turkish government that was checked in a few places, but in most of the places we ventured, restaurants and bars and tourist sites seemed to be operating pretty normally. This country, spanning two continents and several thousand years of human history, should be on everyone's bucket list.
